Installation of SUSE Linux 8.2


Hello!

Could somebody help me with installing SUSE Linux 8.2 on a HP Pavilion ze5200???

The installation hangs all the time (latest after the braille-test).

I'm thankful for any hints! Did somebody install this version on the same Laptop successfully?

greetings

D

Have you chosen the failsafe installation? There are several installation options. Give each one a try in turn and see if it helps.

thanks a lot. but i've tried every possible option. even several boot options like "hwprobe=-bios.vbe -misc" and so on.
I finally got past the Hardware detection, but after the "braille"-stuff the software just quits installing, no working on hard disk or CD-Rom.....

SuSE 8.2 Pro

Did you buy this product or did you borrow it? If you bought it, ask SuSE

I downloaded Mandrake Linux 9.1

-> success on the 1st attempt!!!

i never found out the problem with the suse installer, but who cares?

only my modem and the ir-port didn't work from the beginnig.

I found the modem driver but nothing for my "ali fast ir-controller" so far, any ideas?

thanx & bye

D
